You know about Garth and Reba, Carrie and Blake, J.J. and Leon and Wanda and Wayne. But, what about Oklahoma musicians who are working every day to become the next musician to be known on a first-name basis?

No Cover, a new music podcast from KOSU, will focus on musicians coming from Oklahoma and those just passing through.

Ryan LaCroix, host of The Oklahoma Rock Show, shares his 10 favorite Oklahoma albums of 2019.

Last week, we counted down the top 25 Oklahoma songs of 2019. In total, we played 561 new songs on The Oklahoma Rock Show in 2019, so our final list was very competitive.

Ken Burns 'Country Music' documentary premieres on PBS stations this Sunday at 7pm. And this summer, we've been asking listeners to tell us about a country song that made a big impact on their life.

We received hundred of responses, detailing childhood memories, first kisses, songs that made them think, and how hearing the music of folks like Garth Brooks and Willie Nelson helped them do an about-turn on country music.

Every week, the Oklahoma Music Minute gives a run down of where you can see live music. There is so much great music being played in the state and we encourage you to get out and see some of these musicians live! Here are our picks for the week of August 5-9.

KOSU Radio will host three free screenings across the state of Ken Burns' new documentary Country Music, ahead of its September 15th premiere on PBS stations. This screening will provide an overview of the entire Country Music series, with a series of segments featuring stories about Hank Williams, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Vince Gill, Garth Brooks, and more.
